  1. So, to the Senate majority leader we’re “anarchists” to the vice president we’re “neanderthal”, and to the speaker of the House we’re “knuckle draggers”.

    Ghandi was right…
    “First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win.”

    • I found out that it was a Pew poll–Democratic leaning, I believe–which stated that 78% of Republicans and right leaning independents now identify themselves as conservative/libertarian. We have both the Democrats and the RINOs concerned for their one party government. That’s why Boehner is supporting Obama and why Jeb Bush is awarding Hillary Clinton a ‘liberty medal’.

      • The differences between the two national parties are dissolving and they are becoming one in the same. The RINOs are destroying the Republican party and everything it once stood for. Drudge went on rant about them last week. Think it was Boehner’s quick jump on war with Syria that pushed him to his limit. Regardless, his tweets were spot on.

        “It’s now Authoritarian vs. Libertarian. Since Democrats vs. Republicans has been obliterated, no real difference between parties…”

        “Why would anyone vote Republican? Please give reason. Raised taxes; marching us off to war again; approved more NSA snooping. WHO ARE THEY?!”

  2. Another interesting news item is the Democrats blocking a Cruz resolution to appoint a joint select committee to investigate Benghazi. First Boehner ignores the calls from the majority of his Republican caucus to appoint a select committee, now the Senate blocks one. Whatever it is the ruling class elites are trying to hide from us about Benghazi, it must be pretty damning for them all…

  3. Why can’t we find Dr. Prayer BumP with one of those pin-prick attacks we don’t do?

    Al-Qaida’s leader on Friday marked the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks by calling on Muslims to strike inside the United States, with big attacks or small, using any opportunity they can to “bleed” America financially.

    In an audio message released two days after the 12th anniversary of the attacks, Ayman al-Zawahri said America is not a “mythic power” and that the mujahedeen — Islamic holy warriors — can defeat it with attacks “on its own soil.”

    Al-Zawahri, the successor to Osama bin Laden, used the anniversary to argue that the United States can be defeated by targeting its economy. At the same time, he also addressed the ongoing upheaval in the Arab world. Pointing to a power struggle going on within the rebellion against Syria’s regime, he warned jihadi fighters in that country’s civil war not “compromise” with more secular or moderate rebel factions, who he said would eventually turn against the al-Qaida-linked radicals.

    On Syria’s civil war, al-Zawahri addressed al-Qaida-linked jihadis — including many foreign fighters — who have taken an increasingly prominent role in the fight against President Bashar Assad’s regime. Their rise has caused tensions with more moderate Syrian rebel factions, even escalating to violence and turf battles. The United States and its allies have said they want to build up moderate rebel factions to reduce jihadi influence.

    America wants to use “the Muslim people as a means to topple the pro-Iran Baathist regime and install a secular government and peaceful to Israel,” al-Zawahri said. It “will try to push the mujahedeen to compromise with the secular factions and the enemies of Islam.”

    • You know you’re a real prick when even al-Sabaab hates you.

      American terrorist Omar Hammami, known as Abu Mansoor al-Amriki, rapped of being killed by the sharp end of a cruise missile, but on Thursday he was executed in Somalia alongside a British extremist by members of his al-Shabaab terrorist group.

      The Times reported that Hammami, who took his name from his Syrian-born father, grew up in Alabama and was raised as a Baptist by his mother. Friends said that he listened to the rock group Nirvana and dated one of the prettiest girls in his school before converting to Islam in his teens and growing increasingly devout at the University of South Alabama.

      Comrades loyal to Godane denounced him for a “narcissistic pursuit of fame.”

  4. In other news: CA has jumped the shark.

    In addition to sitting on on juries and working the election polls, illegal aliens will now be able to obtain drivers’ licenses. (Oh, and CA just approved a $2.00 minimum wage hike from $8 to $10).
    The law also provides a loophole against housing and employment disccrimination.

    Illegals will now be able to leave their govt. subsidized housing each morning with their shiny new driver’s license and drive to their new $10/hr job that threw a legal citizen onto the unemployment line, stop at the market on the way home with their new ABT card and purchase a lobster tail and a bottle of Merlot, stop at the bank and cash the SSI checks, and return home to relax and watch Univision with the wife and 4 kids.
    America – Land of the Free(bies) !

    My knuckles might be dragging but at least I’m not elbow-deep in everyone’s pockets.
